If you need to drill a water well or need water pump service for your well in Newbury Park, it is nice to know a little bit about your city.

Once a mainly agricultural area, Newbury Park is actually a town located within the city of Thousand Oaks. Its almost 38,000 residents live in 21 square miles. It is named after Egbert Starr Newbury who was its founder and the first postmaster in the Conejo Valley.

Because it contains many open space areas and is surrounded by wilderness, wildlife is in abundance and often seen in the residential areas. Mountain lions, coyotes, deer, raccoons, bobcats, weasels, badgers, and skunks are often observed as are spiders, snakes and scorpions. The open space also contains miles of trails for hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding, and other recreational activities.

Water Well Drilling and Pump Maintenance Service in Newbury Park

To receive a drilling permit for a well in an area under the moratorium, you should first consult the county bulletins and notices as to how to proceed.

Permit applications for new wells within the Fox Canyon Groundwater Management Agency boundaries must receive approval and be accompanied by a no-fee permit from the FCGMA.

The well driller and inspector must both be registered with the county. This information is submitted as part of the application process.

Water Well Inspection Service in Newbury Park

Because a water well is a private water supply, testing the quality of the water is the responsibility of the property owner. Contaminants from the soil can affect the taste and appearance of the water, as well as its fitness for drinking. Occasionally bacteria can find their way into a well and cause the water to be unsuitable for consumption. It is important to have the water tested at least once a year, after a flood, or when there is a change in the taste or appearance of the water. While this may be done using a do-it-yourself test kit, it is important to contact a qualified professional should the results show any contamination.
